Almond Pandan Cookies

Baking cookies or should I say handling dough is never my forte. Can you believe that I actually spent more than 1.5 hour just to roll the dough and cut into shapes? I guess I really need to brush up my skills. Haha...

I am glad that the time and effort spent are paid off with crunchy buttery almond cookies. :)
